Major oil and gas companies such as British Petroleum, Total SA, and Exxon Mobil Corporation, are some of the integrated lubricant manufacturers, which ensure steady raw material supply to produce additives and mineral oils needed for the production of lubricants. However, other lubricant manufacturers have definitive contracts with suppliers as well as raw material manufacturers. This strategy enables these companies to avoid the impact of price fluctuations as well as time loss in procuring these materials. 

Bio-based lubricants have gained recognition as an alternative to conventional petroleum-based products in numerous applications such as the food and automobile industry. These are derived from animal fats or vegetable oils. To form advanced bio-lubricants, natural oils are chemically modified by esterification, transesterification, and oxidation. Natural oils are inexpensive, widely available, and exhibit better biodegradability as compared to mineral oils. High oleic varieties of sunflower, canola oil, soybean, and rapeseed are now becoming standard base oils for biodegradable greases. 

The demand for bio-based lubricating products is growing at a rapid pace. North America and Europe have emerged as the largest consumers of these products owing to stringent environmental protection policies and rising awareness among consumers in the region. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, lags in the bio-lubricants segment but leads the market for synthetic lubricants. The markets in the Asia Pacific region have started mirroring the American and European regulatory systems and countries such as Japan and South Korea are emphasizing eco-labeled lubricating products.
